    Seems like this would do the job and keep it separate from your "system" on the microSD card.
    While this would do the job for some, running piCorePlayer and LMS on a Pi Zero W with a Justboom Amp Zero, the USB drive doesn't work well. With huge SD cards, it makes sense to have the songs on the SD card.

    My reason for the USB jump drive is to keep music off the SD card where the system is.
    Main system - Rock Solid with LMS 7.9.1 Official on WHS 2011 - 2 Duets and Squeeseslave
    Cabin system - Rock solid with LMS 7.9.1 Official on Win10 Pro - 1 RPi 3 Model B/Hifiberry DAC+ Pro/PiCorePlayer and Squeezeslave

    That might be your reason but that is not the reason for others. By creating a third partition is seems that is can isolate from the system partition and can be protected as well as possible. Once again can we focus on the original question that was asking for about a third partition.

    Use fdisk to create additional partitions.
